Design and minimum-reflux calculations for single-feed multicomponent reactive distillation columns
Abstract A new set of transformed composition variables is introduced to simplify the design equations for single-feed, multicomponent reactive distillation columns. Based onthese equations, aExpand

Design method for kinetically controlled, staged reactive distillation columns
This paper develops a systematic steady-state design methodology for kinetically controlled, staged reactive distillation columns, taking into account a single isomolar or nonisomolar liquid-phaseExpand

The simple distillation of homogeneous reactive mixtures
Abstract The equations describing the simple distillation of homogeneous reactive mixtures are derived, and residue curve maps are computed for ideal and non-ideal systems. These maps show that, byExpand

Measurement of Residue Curve Maps and Heterogeneous Kinetics in Methyl Acetate Synthesis
Kinetically controlled reactive distillation is a bridge between the two limiting cases of nonreactive and equilibrium reactive distillation. In this paper, we study the influence of heterogeneousExpand

A new set of composition variables for the representation of reactive-phase diagrams
A set of transformed composition variables is introduced for the representation of reactive-phase diagrams. These variables are superior to mole fractions because in the new representation, theExpand
